After being diagnosed with plantar fasciitis a few years ago she tried dozens of treatment methods to no avail. Tired of dealing with frustration, she gave The Healing Sole a try and has enjoyed living with less pain ever since. Read more below to hear her story and visit her website.
According2Mandy: A few years ago I was diagnosed with Plantar Fasciitis, and honestly, it is one of the most painful things I have ever had to deal with in my life. I would have constant pain when I walked and running was out of the question.
I went through three doctors before finding one that could actually do anything to help me. One even made it worse, and another said:
“Oh, I don’t know what is wrong, wear a boot and see if it gets better.”[/mk_blockquote] I finally found a great doctor who gave me steroid shots, but the pain would still come and go. I didn’t want to have to get shots the rest of my life. When I saw The Healing Sole Flip Flop, I knew this was something I wanted to buy. These flip flops say that they help with the pain caused by plantar fasciitis and ease the symptoms.
I was willing to try anything at that point, and one thing I hated about dealing with this was that I couldn’t really wear flip flops anymore and instead needed a show with some support.[/mk_blockquote] Dr. Meredith Warner created The Healing Sole, and I am very thankful for that decision. I have been wearing these off and on for about six weeks. I still wear other shoes, and I also wear other flip flops from time to time.
I still have some plantar fasciitis pain, but it is nothing like I was suffering from before. I actually feel like there is no reason to rush in and get a shot done because I am good.
It is actually recommended that you only wear them for a few hours at night and not all day to work.
The design of The Healing Sole is made to relieve pain from plantar fasciitis, reduce pressure at the heel, release stress on key areas of the foot and recover your foot function & comfort according to their website.
I wouldn’t say that The Healing Sole cured me of plantar fasciitis, but I do feel a lot better, and I would highly recommend them. I love them so much that when this pair wears out, I will be getting a new one. I also know that Dr. Warner is working on a closed toe version, and I can’t wait to try those as well when they are out! I interviewed Dr. Warner a while back, and you can read this interview on Blasting News.
